THE SCHEDULE (approximate)
10:00am Technical and spacial set up. Any assistance will be welcome.
NB: The space and instrumentation, amplifiers, drum kit etc are set up as an average and for recording. Anyone wanting a radical change or with a complex set up should attempt to get in before 1:30pm, so the changes can be re-sound checked for recording purposes. Otherwise please play it as it is
1:30pm to 2:30pm Sound Check and a period for meeting, throwing around ideas/structures people would like to try. Nothing is recorded during this period
2:45pm to 5:15pm Free and/or structured improvisation and/or/maybe ideas from the 1st period
5:30pm to 6:30pm “VA@82A” = Virtually Acoustic, Free and/or structured improvisation with absolutely essential amplification only
Rules: No alcoholic or soft drinks in the studio, there’s a kitchen. Volume wars will not be tolerated. Please observe the neighbour breaks (usually about 15 minutes)
Step Up Speak Up: What you hear or see when you arrive doesn’t indicate or dictate the whole afternoon. You can make the difference. If you have an idea you’d like to try, be prepared. There’s access into the PA for IPod, IPhone, IPad, laptop, CD and there’s a dedicated laptop, projector, large screen, ‘Band in Box’, a big blackboard, reams of paper and marker pens so everyone can be on the same page!
Yes, it’s free! However a donation towards upkeep and/or munchies will be gratefully received.
